“When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.” (1 Peter 2:23, ESV)
No doubt you’ve had your share of words that wound. Maybe your wound is old. Though the arrow was extracted long ago, the arrowhead is still lodged, hidden under your skin. If you have suffered or are suffering because of someone else’s words, you’ll be glad to know that there is a balm for this laceration. Jesus fully understand what it is to be hurt, even at the hands of those who loved Him.
Prayer: Lord, give me peace within my soul. Give me forgiveness.
